Gatwick will reopen the North Terminal and increase its operating hours from 15th June as it prepares for more flights to resume.

The UK’s second-busiest airport said it had installed sanitiser stations and protective screens throughout its buildings and introduced regular deep cleaning and physical distancing measures to protect passengers and staff.

With travellers required to wear a face covering in the airport, face mask vending machines will be made available.

The biggest airline at Gatwick, EasyJet, is restarting domestic flights from 15 June, adding to a handful of carriers and routes currently operating.
